What To Expect

At the first appointment a detailed history of your lifestyle, Dr. Helen, a registered Hong Kong Acupuncturist, will consult your major illnesses, medication history and present problems, this is to ensure that that the technique is suitable for you and to explain the procedure.

Hong Kong Acupuncturists choose specific points to place the needles based on your condition. From 1 to 12 points will typically be used during a session, and sometimes more depending on the number of symptoms you have. The needles may be inserted just under the skin, or deeper so they reach muscle tissue. Once the needles are in place, they may be left in position for a length of time lasting from a few minutes up to around 30 minutes. Only sterile disposable acupuncture needles are used. You may feel a tingling or a dull ache when the needles are inserted. You should not experience any significant pain. If you do, let your practitioner know straight away who will be monitoring you throughout the session.

On average, most appointments are 60 minutes long. Frequency of sessions will depend on your condition and after discussion with the acupuncturist.

Unlike the needles, we are used to at Western medical offices which are hollow and thick, acupuncture needles are extremely fine and solid and therefore the sensation of acupuncture needle being inserted is very different to having blood drawn or of having an injection and in many case patients do not even feel the insertion of acupuncture needles.

The beneficial effects of this technique can be immediate, but in some cases improvement in symptoms may take a few days. Repeated treatments are sometimes necessary to see full benefits.

The FDA now regulates acupuncture needles, just as it does other devices such as surgical scalpels and hypodermic syringes, under good manufacturing practices and single-use standards of sterility. 

What Is Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a kind of technique which stimulates some points on the body, like inserting needles into our skin. It is a traditional Chinese medicine that has been a component of the health care system of China which can be traced back at least 2,500 years. 

"Acupuncture", a form of traditional Chinese medicine treatment, is derived from the Latin ‘acus’- a needle and ‘punctura’ - to puncture. Acupuncture involves the insertion of very thin needles through the patient's skin at specific points on the body. According to traditional Chinese medical theory, acupuncture points are located on meridians through which give vital energy runs. Practitioners who adhere to traditional beliefs about acupuncture believe that when Qi (energy) does not flow freely through the body, this can cause illness. They also believe acupuncture can restore the flow of Qi, and so restore health.

The British Medical Association offered its opinion on the subject at the BMA's annual conference in London in June 2000. The association published a report: Acupuncture: Efficacy, Safety and Practice, which acknowledged the scientific benefits of acupuncture and recommended that the treatment be incorporated into the National Health Service.

Since then, a number of extensive clinical trials have been conducted and new research is beginning to provide quantifiable evidence of acupuncture’s efficacy in treating many common health conditions.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) lists a wide variety of diseases and disorders for which acupuncture therapy has been tested in controlled clinical trials, which can be found on the world health organization.

Conditions Treated By Acupuncture

A healthy balanced diet, good sleep pattern, reducing excess stress and regular treatments by acupuncture all contribute to a strong immune system to maintain optimal health.

In recent years, treatments by acupuncture have been used to boost the immune system and has gained popularity in contributing not only in treating medical conditions and symptoms but also in supporting and promoting the maintenance of health and well being. 

The idea being that energy should flow throughout the body.  When it gets blocked or becomes stagnant, health issues can arise.   Receiving regular acupuncture treatments ensures such energy to always flow freely and thus provides the necessary support the body needs to prevent any likely medical issues to arise.
